You can throw out his victory over Rosenbloom who was good but still developing and only 18 or 19 years old.
I won't throw away the Rosenbloow victory as Maxie had had over 40 fights and faced guys like Greb and Slattery already. Sure, he was young but not entirely green.
I'm more concerned if Delaney had the style and abilities to defuse Foster's powerpunching, or if Foster would just be too much.
